Before I Go

August 9, 2008
By Natasha Cooper, Pembroke Pines, FL

The heart is pumping
The time is ticking
A move must be made before it stops beeping
There is only so much time left in this quick second
It is just then that it lessened

Never will I see you because of the light
Never will I hear you because of the height

Never going to be found because it will never be lost
Never going to be fixed because it will never be broken
Never going to hate you because I am always going to love you

Even from up above looking down
Hoping to have no frown
I pray to say those three words
I love you
